The Protege and the Master

Mom headed back to work and left her guy to hang out with this cute fellow.

Burp Face

Ah, the burp face, my favorite show of the day.  Bulgy eyes, baby gas, a fixed stare of utter bewilderment... hard to beat.
*Disclaimer- This baby is not being choked.
Sadly, the eyes aren't so bulgy anymore and bewilderment has given way to this more mature stare of being resigned to one's fate.  Newborn burpface, I will miss you.

Video Highlights with Cat Interlude

This one has it noises, karate kicks, smiles, hiccups, the sprinkler, Olympic finishes, sneezing, yawns, fist bumping, fake microphone holding, a daring stunt, and plenty of arm flailing.  Our life is most exciting!  Make sure you watch until the end for the big finish. 

Just kidding, there was no big finish.  Did my ploy work, though?

Party Plugs

Saturday was Daron's birthday. On top of the requested extravagance of a Raisin Bran breakfast, a used video game, and some Snickers ice cream, I presented this festive frock to help celebrate.
Please don't judge me for trying to makeover my son at such a young age.  We love him just the way he is, however his baldy top has received more than one old man reference.  I thought I would paint a picture of a future Silas (hopefully) with hair.

Getting our foot painted.  Probably crying...but it looks like a smile! :)

Friends from Afar

We saw some of our besties this weekend!  Kristen, Joy, and Leah came in to meet the little man.  
painted some tiles with cute baby footprints and questionable handwriting,
crossed our fingers and prayed for Kristen to actually leave the tarmac in Chicago (she did- despite the attempts to thwart it by the woman in the bathroom),
played 20 questions with Leah,
lost (Daron and I) at Leah's homemade trivia/ won (Joy and Kristen) at Leah's homemade trivia,
made slightly burnt calzones (me again),
celebrated Joy's birthday,
got in the 2 most important Sunday "C's" (Church and Chipotle),
watched some good (Kristen and I)/ terrible (Joy and Leah) movies,
read a hilarious snuggie blog,
made sushi,
realized I need to watch more news,
were serenaded by the cutest 4-year-old... "Meat's too brown, think I'll go to town"  (and we did),
had a California Dreamin' lunch,
and thoroughly enjoyed being with old pals.
I am probably forgetting many things...or maybe not because I am a slightly boring host and had to include every meal we ate to make a respectable list.
However, they didn't get to experience a banana pudding milking shake, so alas, they must return.
